Back from the very rainy National Relays. That was very humbling after last weeks third! We did ok considering, 57th out of 65 (plus a few teams that didn't have a full team). Beat both our local rivals. On the face of it could do better but the standard was unbelievable. Mo Farah was registered for his club for the man's race but don't think he was there! The fastest girl ran the course in 13 minutes something . I ran it in 19.01, second fastest in our team of four. Was a very random distance of 4.35 kilometres. I was the first leg and they went off like frigging rockets. Never have I seen so many sharp elbows on a start line! (And that's coming from me!) Course was really quite undulating as well and I was very relieved to see the finish.
The foot held up ok, put Ibuprofen gel on it. Hurts a bit now though.
